Does your error also happen because, like the Kobo, the Pocket302 stops communicating after it enters sleep mode, say after about 15 minutes?

I have to try this with my Jetbook Lite tomorrow night and see if I can replicate this error.
Yep - I get that error 99% of the time. My exact report is

ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device
(13, 'Permission denied')
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\", line 68, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\", line 282, in _books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\", line 164, in books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\", line 303, in sync_booklists
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\", line 301, in write_prefix
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'F:\\metadata.calibre'

The Pocketbook 302 does not have a sleep mode as far as I know. Certainly not when you are communicating with it. When the USB cable is plugged in the PB302 has the USB Active icon flashing the whole time. So no - no sleep mode.

This report was from v0.7.13. I can connect to my PB302 from v0.7.6, and it works perfectly. In fact, I just did it a few seconds ago to check. This is pointing to exactly the same calibre library paths in both versions. ie I have 0.7.6 in a VMware system pointing to a path on the host. On the host system I have 0.7.13 pointing to the self same path.

In fact, 0.7.6 works very well. It is what I always use. No version since then works with my PB302 - because of this problem.
